- Doc-data - refers to the Docs, any data extracted from them, any notes added to them, and the emails in which they were sent into Lightyear
In order to ensure compliance with privacy laws in varying jurisdictions, and to ensure ease of use of the Service, we choose to identify and treat the different data-types distinctly.

We may retain your information as necessary to comply with a legal obligation, to resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Transferring your docs to you does not release you from any obligation to pay us for Services that we have provided for you.
- If a doc has remained in an Intray, Approved, Signed off, Inventory, Disputed or Unknowns tab for 180 days without having been moved to or from another tab, the doc-data relating to the doc will be deleted, but if the doc-data has been exported to either your accounting software or your inventory system, the doc-data will not be deleted.
- If you sign up for a Lightyear account, and the account is not set to be a child of a parent, Lightyear will delete the account and all of the doc-data after 180 days after your free-trial period expires unless you have bought a monthly or a bulk-buy plan during those 180 days. In addition, Lightyear will also delete the Lightyear account without any further warning.
- In addition, any doc-data that has been in your trash for 30 days will be deleted from your trash.
